Healing Retreat for Women with Cancer, March in Santa Fe
© Elizabeth Opalenik
According to an old Chinese saying, a life crisis can be the occasion both for suffering and for welcome change. A cancer diagnosis, in this way, may be met with struggle, fear, and resignation, or viewed as an opportunity for deep reflection and resolution of old patterns and issues. Even as they deal medically with their disease, many people are deeply engaged in letting go of old patterns of behavior and inventing new actions that honor life, bring peace, and promote healing.

Scheduled for March 26-April 1 in Santa Fe, this special workshop, led by Matthew Budd, M.D., Elizabeth Opalenik, and Connie Reider, is about seizing the opportunity for positive change and making life-giving choices. The instructors guide participants to identify and reflect on destructive patterns and bring forth new and satisfying behaviors. Our week together includes self-reflective talks and exercises, free writing, inspiration from the world’s wisdom and spiritual literature, and creative art-making. Photography is the vehicle that we use to strengthen our creative “muscles” as we search for new solutions to old problems.

From our home base in County Mayo, where traditional culture still thrives, we travel south to Connemara and north to Achill Island, photographing tiny villages, hidden beaches, ancient abbeys, and druid woods. We discover a land and culture throughliving it, and touch the spirit and soul of Ireland as few visitors ever experience it. Join John Weiss for a very personal experience of this land and its culture.
